The blue and gold model is gorgeous, whereas the conventional white and black are ogle-worthy too. While it is not the primary time that Xiaomi has a dual-camera cellphone (the Redmi Pro was the primary), the brand new Mi 6 joins different flagships from rivals akin to Huawei, LG and Apple in providing the function.

Like Apple’s smartphone, the Mi 6 has a Portrait Mode and options 2x optical zoom as effectively. I am going to strive it out later and we’ll see the way it fares towards the iPhone.
